Do you remember the 70s book Johnathan Livingston Seagull?
It was beautifully illustrated with photographs that told the story of a particular bird who was more of an odd duck than he was gull.
At about the same time, there was a movie: The Birds. Those birdies were very different to friendly Jonathan, and after seeing the Alfred Hitchcock film at the local theater, I felt frightened to go near the lagoon in Stanley Park.
Here is some real-life imagery that could have come from either of the book or the movie.
All’s well that ends well…
